OK, so the Republicans went along with a "compromise" that keeps the corporate kicker for all but the smaller businesses, raises the corporate minimum tax and cuts the estate tax between the $2 and $3 million level.
Yes, they caved. Republicans should not raise taxes. First, it is the wrong thing to do, but second, it is a stupid political thing to do. Standing for lower taxes is the party's best and most popular position. We should never give it up.
So I am disappointed, although hardly surprised.
